Fanatic! In body storage mode in Brentford, UK. I am waiting to go to Bilbao, Spain for a show.

I have been in England for a few days now. I was at the Download and Isle of Wight festivals. On a day off at Isle of Wight, we got to see Iggy play. Fourth time this year!

Otherwise, all is well. Trying to listen to as much music as I can and catch up on a lot of writing. This hotel has a gym with a good bike in it so I am wearing myself out on that every day.

It is slightly too soon to talk about it now but I think I might have some really good stuff lined up for August. I am working things out with some labels and waiting to hear back. Fanatic, we are always trying to get first listens and every possible cool thing to lay on you. Cool music as much and as often as possible, right?! Absolutely.

I am listening to our show right now. It’s another great one. I hope you are filling the summer with a lot of music. I will be on tour a lot this year, so a lot of my listening with be digital. I am dealing with that as much as I can. I have picked as many of the digital only releases I have picked up recently and getting those listened to out here.

I am finishing off the Gutterdämmerung shows. By the beginning of next month, I will be done with the run. I have been living on a bus filled with band and crew. It’s always crowded. It’s good to get a break from that for a few days. I’ll be back to it soon enough.

I believe the tickets for all my shows in October through December have just gone on sale. I am glad to finally get those shows on the board. We have been planning this tour for many months. If you live in the Los Angeles area, I have a few shows at Largo for December. It’s on their calendar. Two of the shows are sold out but there should be tickets for the other two nights.

The most important thing here is what’s below. Look at all those tunes! It’s a great show and hopefully you find it to be perfect warm weather listening. Apparently it’s a little cool in Australia. Well then, you Australians, imagine it’s summer and tune in!

Until next week, listen often and STAY FANATIC!!!
